Lefty has wish granted, teeing off late on Thursday

RSS

AUGUSTA, Ga. – Phil Mickelson had one of his wishes granted at the Masters this week. Again.

Prior to the 2011 edition of the tournament, when he had returned as a defending champion for the third time, Mickelson spoke about his preference to start with a late tee time at Augusta National.

“I like the latest tee time possible here,” he said at the time. “And the reason is, about 5:00, it seems to just calm down. It seems like any wind that might be out there just seems to subside. It seems very peaceful. And I would love nothing more than to have the last tee time every day.”



That year, he received the second-to-last tee time of the day at 1:48 p.m. ET. The next year was 1:53 (last tee time) and the year after that was 1:30 (third-to-last).

And this time? If you guessed Mickelson is teeing it up late on Thursday again, you’re right. He’ll play in the second-to-last tee time of the day at 1:48 p.m. alongside Justin Rose and Ernie Els.
